Where is the overall fonts setting

Posted by Juanito on Nov. 02 2007,14:52I need to adjust the way fonts look in dsl when using fluxbox and xorg72.
I guess the difference in the font packages between the base dsl, xfree86 and xorg72 causes the fonts on the desktop, emelFM, etc to look strange when using xorg72.
Is there a place to adjust the overall fonts setting (eg helvetica 12 or whatever the dsl default is) or do I need to change settings in each application?
Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on Nov. 02 2007,16:01Afaik applications try to find the closest font, usually from fontpath (i.e. xorg.conf/xset q)
I remember when loading xorg, the fonts on the desktop looked a bit different, but it wasn't much of a difference, so I don't remember exactly...
Do you mean strange as in a bad way? Got a screenshot for comparison? Does this only happen with the newer xorg externsion?
